Favorite Jeans (and Jean Shorts) of the Summer!

I’ve been wearing a TON of denim this summer and sharing a lot of it on Instagram. So I thought it was time to share some of my favorite denim from this summer with you on the blog! Keep scrolling to see my top five favorite summer jeans!

I’ve worn these denim shorts by Blank NYC so much this summer! They’re so comfortable and easy to wear. And they’re only $68! They have some distressing and a frayed hem but it’s not over the top. I throw these on with a pair of cute sandals and a tee and I’m out the door in no time. They are true to size. If you’re between sizes, size up. It’s always better with shorts to have them fit a bit more loosely. You will always look slimmer if you size UP versus down.

Next, I want to share these Good American split-hem jeans. I really like this fresh, light wash for summer. There’s a little distressing, but the coolest part is the split-hem at the ankle. It gives the jeans a cool factor and a little extra something special. The split-hem also perfectly frames a gorgeous pair of shoes. These jeans are also VERY flattering, so soft you’ll want to travel in them, high rise to suck in all the jiggle and insanely comfortable!

I shared these Moussy jeans in another post I did that featured some Vince Camuto booties here. These jeans by Moussy are super modern and are definitely a modern and edgy pair of jeans if you want to add some modernity and youthfulness to your denim wardrobe. This pair is tapered with a frayed hem, and mild distressing. The length is PERFECT for petites. If you are tall, you should probably order a different pair by Moussy. This is a Japanese line and I think that plays into the fit. Again, they are SO good for us shorties. The jeans definitely update your mom uniform. There are some similar ones without the frayed hem here.

An all-time favorite pair of jeans are these striped Mother Denim jeans. You’ve no doubt seen them before if you are a regular reader… They are high rise. They have modern, edgy racing stripes down the sides (which also make your legs look slimmer), and they have the trendy step hem detailing at the bottom. Size UP, they run small. More sizes here.

I featured these jeans by L’AGENCE in my May Favorites video. They’re SUPER cool, different, and fun! They are wide-leg, cropped, and have a red and white racing stripe down the side. They’re really lightweight so it’s a good summer jean. If you wear jeans all the time and are looking to change it up…these are the jeans for you! They run a little big so size down. More sizes here.

For more affordable denim, I am loving BlankNYC, Madewell and Express.

High end lines I love are Mother, Citizens, Rag & Bone, Moussy, and AG.

  1. Hi Erin!
    Have you tried liverpool jeans? I got a pair of their BOYFRIEND trousers in my first fabfitfun box and didn’t think i WOuld like but thEm, but are sooo comfortable! i decided i had to have a pair of jeans with a similar cut. The first Pair i ordered didn’t woRk so i sent them an email and asked Which Style would be similar to the trouser i got in my fff box. The rep recommended the Peyton Slim boyfriend; she said the first pair were 100% cotton so no stretch. I got them yeSterday and am wearing them today. They are exactly what i was looking for! The price pOint is around $80, So they are a nice jeans W/o breaking the bank! Happy Friday! After watching your video and Angie’s i am PROBABLY PLACING my Nordstrom order today. I know that Mural white blazer isn on sale, but i am thinking of GETTING ot anyWay. I got it in black a month or so ago and love the fit!

    1. I have not… but I need to try them now. Thanks for the tip, Lynn!! What do you think of the white blazer?
